    cause as a team nyr stinks 5v5
    or
    i can target individual players that have been stinking in the playoffs 5v5 and review shift charts of who is opposing in these stink of a player(s)

    braun/paryako/vlasic/sobotka/boumeester/girardi (all guys who stink)
    mcdavid/draisaitl/suter/gallagher/zucker (all guys who face the stink)

    The Rangers have outscored Montreal 10-7 at even strength in the series. Also, the play of Dan Girardi is a big reason they’re where they’re at this point in the series.

    but..but..but.. he stinks. And here’s why:

    and the shift chart shows that plekanec/gallagher/byron are staples (maybe u prefer the word ‘glue’) when girardi is on the ice..But..but..but gallagher has the most shots amongst his line

    There’s no buts. Girardi has been a stud in this series to those actually paying attention. If you’re playing with a constant team or player bias in your head like you obviously have for the Rangers you will lose more often than not.

    the stats support my cause and that sets precedence

    constant team or player bias in your head like you obviously have for the Rangers you will lose more often than not. Thanks for the advice tho but it cleary contradicts what a ‘grinder’ as this website is titled does in that he sticks to it like glue (or would u prefer the word ‘staple’) and that will have u win more often than not!

    Which is why you troll instead of actually playing anything.

    i’m in the free 200 player tourney on dk as well as the free tourney that offer the measly $3 top prize

    you can find me there if ^ wasn’t enough direction for you

    you should try the free 200 player sometime, might help you review your game and see where your lineup ‘may’ need improvement

  • mathewsmarner

    you get the feeling nugent hopkins is going to go on a one game scoring onslaught?

  • CheeseBaller82

    Hopefully my post can get us all back on track in a much more positive vibe (which I feel is the purpose of this thread)

    What are opinions of late swap strategy? Risky early/late?

  • AClavel

    Why would you take MTL1 when you have Gallagher and Lehkonen doing work right now……

  • mathewsmarner

    know what i love about watching poker on t.v. is you know what the last hand is because the show has to end
    tonight in game 6 possible elimination game, you know montreal is just going to wack at the puck…they have to score….they have no choice but to

    I only late swap if one of my early line stacks does okay, but not great, and I want to switch to a 2nd or 3rd line from the late chalk for a chance of having that entry still have a shot at top 10.

    lost a bunch last night just barely thanks to no block awarded to mcavoy

    gonna lose a bunch today too

    rotowire and dailyfaceoff said barbeshev starting, player feed had nothing (last update on DK):

    04/12/2017 7:58:33 AM EST
    UPDATE: Barbashev centered the top line during Tuesday’s practice and looks like he’ll start in that spot Wednesday, when the Blues and Wild meet in the first round of the playoffs, Tom Timmerman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    ========

    late scratch

  • yisman

    barbeshev was a top value if he played

    what I went with

    C Ivan Barbashev 100% 0 lock

    ^#%&

  • mathewsmarner

    based on the stink factor, jason zucker and ryan suter going to go ‘off’ fence on these blues
    going back to montreal having to score, who better than paul byron with his 25% shot success rate

  • mathewsmarner

    lineup post got deleted

  • mathewsmarner

    dubynk sucks

  • CheeseBaller82

    Only if you started him!

  • Messiah717

    Andrew Shaw out tonight for Montreal.

  • mathewsmarner

    ‘let’s get ready to zuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk it’
    now if only dubnyk can get that win

  • mathewsmarner

    overtime is great if u have a goalie is it not?
    is that what you guys hope for of your goalies, they carry a shutout into o.t.?
    or just a shutout?
    thank’s for the .6pts dubby

  • mathewsmarner

    next up is gallagher who is hovering at the same price as ‘zuck it’
    as you can guess i didn’t go mtl 1
